The sun was setting in the east and around the time it began to stain the area in warm colors, I was told that he wished to talk to me alone and so I came to the inner courtyard where he was waiting.
He said several things before he suddenly fell silent and directed an unusually serious gaze at me.
My breath caught at the dream-like sight of him, illuminated by the red light, and I—
—continued to stare at him like that.
[YUKIMURA]: “Today, when I went to town, the owner of a shop I go to often complimented you. They said you helped out a person who was in trouble.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Even though you were the one complimented, for some reason I felt happy too.”
[YUKIMURA]: “That kindness of yours heals everyone. Of course, myself included… Thank you.”
—resolved myself to speak to him. [voiced]
[YUKIMURA]: “It’s been two years since I met you— a lot of precious memories have been made. But it’s still not enough.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Next year, and the year after that too… I want to keep making memories at a distance closer than anyone else. From here on too, let’s walk forward together.”
—unconsciously averted my eyes.
[YUKIMURA]: “… S-sorry. If I stare at you like this, it’s embarrassing, isn’t it?”
[YUKIMURA]: “But I’m drawn to those eyes to the point where I think about wanting to stare at them forever.”

A Fight That Can’t Be Lost
[SASUKE]: “Self-style ninja art, Gale Fang!”
[SAIZOU]: “Heh, weak, Sasuke! Ninja art, Flowing Flower Wind!”
[YUKIMURA]: “… What are they doing?”
[KAMANOSUKE]: “Something like hanetsuki.”
Happy New Year! A new year starts, huh. I’m so happy to be able to say “congratulations” to each other with you this year too. I’m really glad I’m able to pass the year smiling with you and everyone in Sanada. This year, as the general, I have to be more reliable! I’m going to continue protecting this happiness that isn’t for granted… Let me stay be your side, over anyone else. I don’t want the person to protect you to not be me—
The year is going to end soon, huh… It’ll be the second year’s end since you came here. How was your year this year? It was a really great year for me. You’re here beside me and just seeing that smile gives me so much strength. I’m happier more than anyone else just being by your side. I’d like to be together with you for the end of the year next year too. Please keep showing me that gentle smile—
I learned my lesson with Shingen’s and this time there’s no delay, hurrah! I started collecting his interactions the moment I got into Sanada’s route, haha. Anyway, please enjoy the sweetness overload because if you thought Shingen and MC were like a married couple then Yukimura and MC are even more so, surprisingly!
The battle ended and on the way home… I walked alongside Yukimura-kun behind the soldiers heading back to the castle.
[YUZUKI]: “… Phew, I’m glad today’s battle ended safely.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Yeah, really. It’s also thanks to everyone doing their best.”
[YUZUKI]: “Haha, that’s true…”
“I want to be together with you from now on as well.
No matter what happens, I’ll protect you so stay smiling by my side.”

Oh no! It seems like the leaders in Sengoku Night Blood were teleported to our world. Here’s your adventure with them for just today!! (There’s a ton of tweets embedded in this post so be careful if you’re viewing this on mobile. Also, between specific tweets, SNB held polls to see who got a card story and I’ve inserted those in too.)
Happy New Year! Everyone in the Sanada Army was lively at this year’s passing too. Sasuke and Saizou fought over the kuri kinton…… and it made me think how blessed we were. Every year when I see this sight, I think about how I need to be reliable as the general of the Sanada Army. It’s my goal this year to see everyone smile more than they did last year. Of course, I want to see you smile lots too. –It’d be nice to laugh a lot together with you this year too.
Daikon, potatoes, carrots, rice cakes…… OK, with these the preparation for the zoni is perfect! Every year everyone in the Sanada Army passes the new year eating the vegetable zoni that everyone made. You’ll be together with us this year too, huh. I’m really happy about that. It’d be nice if next year, and the year after that– you continued to be together with us.
I’ll Definitely Come Running
(Cards about the anime were given out and they correspond with each episode of the anime. Yukimura’s second card takes place after episode 8 of the anime).
[YUKIMURA]: “For you to be taken away…… I’m really sorry to have you go through such scary experience.”
[YUKIMURA]: “I’m definitely going to save you! No matter what happens, I’ll come running to you.”
[YUKIMURA]: “I want to hurry and save you…… in order to save you, everyone’s been training as hard as they can.”
[YUKIMURA]: “In order to get back your smile, we’re all going to work hard and put our strength together!”
[YUKIMURA]: “Believe in us and hold on……!”
Together With You
(Cards about the anime were given out and they correspond with each episode of the anime. Yukimura’s card takes place after episode 4 of the anime).
[YUKIMURA]: “The daikon I harvested with you was made into stew.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Usually, meals become a struggle and fight between Sasuke, Saizou, and Kamanosuke, but because we harvested a lot, everyone could eat lots and fill their stomachs.”
[YUKIMURA]: “It’s all because of your help. Honestly, thank you!”
[YUKIMURA]: “But it’s a shame we didn’t eat together with you. Next time, by all means I’d like you to eat the Sanada Army’s vaunted cooking.”
[YUKIMURA]: “We’ll welcome you at any time!”
